Capacity Building Programme

IILA’s capacity Development expertise

IILA has a fully- fledged capacity building programme whose main focus is to build capacity of stakeholders to strengthen their engagement in their respective areas of interest. Our Capacity development approach is two pronged:

Personal/ Organizational knowledge and skills development

This focuses on building the technical capacities of individuals and organizations and involves design and delivery of effective training programs that meet the needs of the target audience.

Institutional strengthening for effective delivery

We are cognizant of the fact that skills alone; without the requisite institutional support structure; may not be effective in achieving set objectives. Institutional strengthening is geared towards enabling organizations to improve their process and related policies, procedures and strategies by developing their functional capacities.

Relevant elements of our capacity development approach

Capacity assessment: All our capacity development initiatives are preceded by a comprehensive capacity assessment to determine the specific capacity needs and gaps to enable design of relevant and effective program to address these needs and ensure the desired changes are achieved. This involves assessment of individual knowledge and skills on relevant subject as well as assessment of organizational strengths and weaknesses through amongst other approaches; the Holistic Organizational Capacity Assessment Instrument (HOCAI).

Participatory processes: Our capacity development initiatives are designed to be as participatory as possible with input from both our clients and the beneficiaries of the respective initiatives.

Use of wide range of capacity development approaches: IILA employs a wide range of capacity building approaches depending on the target audience and the needs identified at the capacity

Some of the activities carried out include:

  • Continuously developing a training curriculum
  • Holding regular training sessions to develop technical skills
  • Facilitating exchange programs with peer organizations both within and outside the country
  • Furnishing opportunities for exposure/acquisition of experience by members such as attending meetings, workshops,     seminars and conferences
  • Developing a pool of resource people like experts, consultants, facilitators, advisors etc.
  • Fostering working relationships with MPs, Parliamentary Staff and Committees
